Do the FBI’s actions stand up to scrutiny under current U.S. cyber laws? Have there been other, more recent examples of cases in which US law enforcement targeted non-U.S. citizens in a similar manner?

In 2000, FBI special agents lured Russian cyber criminals Vasiliy Gorshkov and Alexey Ivanov to the United States with a ruse involving a job interview. The FBI also downloaded evidence of their crimes from computers in Russia. Using information from your classroom, additional materials provided by your instructor, and your own independent research, address whether the FBI’s investigative techniques went too far. Did the FBI act under the color of any international laws or compacts, or were their actions unsanctioned by laws? Do the FBI’s actions stand up to scrutiny under current U.S. cyber laws? Have there been other, more recent examples of cases in which US law enforcement targeted non-U.S. citizens in a similar manner? What, if any, are the positive or negative impacts of this case on subsequent cyber-crime investigations? Your submission should be a minimum of four pages in length, and it should conform to APA formatting and citation standards. A title page and reference list (APA style) are mandatory, but will not count toward the four-page requirement. The ONLY font for an APA project is Times New Roman size 12
